Emergency department closure in Pugwash on Wednesday and Friday

The emergency department at the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Pugwash will be closed during daytime hours Wednesday and Friday. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the closures, which are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., are due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. will be available as usual.
